My first trip to the Island I could not have picked a better place to stay. The welcome we got on arrival was superb All the staff were friendly helpfull and very polite prices were fair the choice of menu was excellent. Rooms were cleaned every day without fail, views from the hotel are excellent, only 15 steps to the beech. what more could one ask for Iwill definately stay here again

From the minute we stepped off the bus they were very friendly and the service was exceptional!! The staff were all brilliant and NOTHING was too much trouble for them. The food was brilliantly cooked and the staff who ran the bar were there when you got up in a morning and still there at night when you went to bed. Always with a smile and and a welcome. The rooms were spotless as was everywhere else in the hotel. Just don't know how to put it all in to words how fantastic our holiday was staying at the Marina Bay and anyone who doesn't stay there - well - all I can say is - its there loss!!! Thanks to all the staff who made our stay so lovely.

Can't understand why people fault the service at this hotel..We have just come back after a fantastic week there..The owners and staff that work there are so helpful and can't do enough for you. Rooms are clean and comfortable..Food is great with a lovely choice...The portions are not small as others say..The bar is well stocked and not overpriced and the owners even bought us a round of drinks on the last day...I will definately be going back to this hotel...Big thank you to Manish and his staff...

Like many here I read the reviews before I stayed. I can only speak from my experience. Our visit was for 4 nights.We did have a warm welcome when we arrived and our bags were taken to room 12 which was small, basic but clean. The bathroom was small and had a shower, toilet and wash basin. Upon arrival we were asked to chose our evening meal. The food was plentiful and to a good standard, the sevice was good too. It's a family run hotel, the staff were helpful and friendly but always had to take instructions from the manager who seemed to control everything. On our first night the bar closed early (10.55pm) without warning and as other reviewers have commented you felt like you were being forced to go to your room. The entertainment was the usual singer/keyboard player etc as has become the norm in most hotels of this type. Overall if you want good value for money in a clean basic but friendly hotel with a good location then this hotel is for you.

The staff were very miserable,the owner could barely put a smile on his face. We were told the bar would stay open for as long as we were drinking,but at 11.30pm it was shut and all the lights were turned off, very rude the way it was done. tablecloths were not changed for the whole weekend we were there,there were bits of food from the previous day on there. You had to order the next days meal the day before, they classed potato croquettes as roast potatoes. When you opened up the shower door there was a funny smell of poor drainage.
